Former President and Peoples Democratic party Chieftain, Olusegun Obasanjo says Nigeria under the current administration is drifting towards a failed state.
Obasanjo who has always been critical of the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari had written a series of letters to express his concerns in the last few years.
At an interactive session with some socio-cultural groups in Abuja on Friday, the ex-president accused Buhari’s administration of mismanaging the country’s socio-economic development.
Today, Nigeria is fast drifting to a failed and badly divided state, economically our country is becoming a basket case and poverty capital of the world, and socially, we are firming up as an unwholesome and insecure country,” he said.
“And these manifestations are the products of recent mismanagement of diversity and socio-economic development of our country.
“Old fault lines that were disappearing have opened up in greater fissures and with drums of hatred, disintegration and separation and accompanying choruses being heard loud and clear almost everywhere.
